Tool thief takes plea deal; stole from Canandaigua, South Bristol properties

A Farmington man who was slapped with 30 days for mouthing off to a judge changed his tune and pleaded guilty to burglary charges.

On Thursday, Theodore “Ted” O’Connor, 38, pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree burglary and had his other criminal charges dismissed in what will be an agreed-upon sentence of three and a half to seven years for each count, to be served concurrently.

O’Connor admitted in court that he stole from a property on State Route 21 in Canandaigua and a property on Seneca Point Road in South Bristol. According to Ontario County Assistant District Attorney Heather Hines, O’Connor was stealing contractor- and construction-type equipment.

O’Connor was sentenced as a second felony offender and waived his right to appeal.
